Server 2012 DHCP with 2003 Forest

In the midst of replacing a 2003 server with 2012.
Joined the domain, left the forest and domain levels at 2003.

Everything replicated over nicely, except for DHCP.
On the 2012 box, in DHCP Manager, it just shows a 169 address.  If I right click it and say "Add a Server", my choices are the 2003 server, and THIS 2012 server.  If I add it, it never shows up, and I can't see the DHCP options.

On the 2003 box, if I "Add a Server", it shows me the two servers, and if I choose the 2012 box, it adds it.  But the only choice is "Server Options".

I want the DHCP to be like my DNS is now.  I see the same on both servers and they are working together.  Is that possible with DHCP?  Right now I am thinking about killing it off on the 2003 box and recreating it on the 2012 box.

Thanks.

The two DHCP servers will not share information or changes the way active directory integrated DNS does. You can export and import settings or you can simply create them fresh on the 2012 server, Bt if you are expecting your 2003 settings to just show up, hat won't happen.
